Tool and die storage for adhesive label manufacturing

Hänel Rotomat Vertical Carousel

Cayer Barrioz, founded in 2001, is a specialist when it comes to self-adhesive labels and serves customers in the European market.

A Hänel Rotomat® provides space-saving central storage to support the company’s manufacturing processes. About 2,000 dies and punching tools are systematically kept in the well-organized Rotomat® so that they are available to production workers at all times. The Hänel storage solution fully utilizes the vertical space available in the building – from floor to ceiling.

Item numbers are assigned to all of the tools and dies kept in the Hänel Rotomat®. When an item number is entered on the MP 12 N-StandAlone microprocessor controller, the Rotomat® brings the carrier with the specified tool to the access point. The Hänel compartment and sub-level indicators show precisely where tools are located on the carrier to ensure error-free retrieval. Tools can be easily retrieved or returned to the Hänel system thanks to the ergonomic work counter. This storage solution effectively prevents errors and mix-ups during tool retrieval.

Customized configurations

The robust and distortion-free multifunction carriers are configurable with versatile dividers to ensure maximum storage density and space utilization. Furthermore, the Hänel Rotomat® protects all of the cutting and punching tools from dust and dirt.

In addition to ease of use and outstanding retrieval ergonomics, employees also benefit from improved overall safety with the Hänel Rotomat®. Stooping, bending or stretching to retrieve items from storage are things of the past.

The efficient and compact Hänel Rotomat® was installed to replace static shelving so that more floor space would be available for manufacturing purposes.

Cayer Barrioz appreciates Hänel product quality and was impressed by the expert planning and fast installation.

„The compact design of the Hänel Rotomat® means that floor space can be made available for production processes, and the solution contributes to an ergonomic work environment for employees.“
